Fox Sports Kansas City:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. You brace for the usual jive. Some line about arm strength. Or poise. Or command of the playbook. How Ricky Stanzi is growing up, becoming a man before their very eyes.
Instead, Dexter McCluster considers the question for a second, repeating it out loud.
"The difference between Ricky now and then?" the Kansas City Chiefs' tailbackreceiver asks.
"Yep," you say.
"He dances a lot. He likes to have fun."
"As in, dance in the pocket? That kind of thing?"
"No," McCluster continues, laughing. "Off-the-field, getting-your-groove-on type of dancing."
"He's a funny guy. He's definitely a funny guy."
Yeah, deep down, there's a little bit of Joe Montana in Ricky Stanzi from a personality standpoint, at least. Joe Cool was infamous for cracking wise in the most tense of circumstances. During one television timeout in Super Bowl XXIII, the 49ers trailing the Bengals ...

During last week’s on the field OTA’s, back up quarterback Ricky Stanzi was the one who led the second team offense onto the field, not Brady Quinn who was just signed this offseason.
While Stanzi didn’t look that good when he came in for Matt Cassell, when he went down last season, he might be ready to be his back up in 2012.
I wouldn’t be shocked at all if...
The Kansas City Chiefs have only had back-to-back winning seasons once since former head coach Marty Schottenheimer was let go after the 1998 season.

Matt Cassel will try to turn around the Chiefs and his fantasy production in 2012.
Back in 2010, Matt Cassel had a terrific season. Nearly everything went according to plan. He took the Chiefs to the AFC West title and became a relevant fantasy option as he threw for 3,116 yards, 27 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
Rewind to the start of last season and Cassel was...

According to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed free agent safety Abe Elam.

The seventh-year veteran played for the Cowboys in 2011 and has played in 92 career games, recording 365 tackles (271 solo), 5.0 sacks (-39.0 yards) and three interceptions.

Anytime you bring in a new head coach or coordinator, players are going to be working on a learning curve with the new system or systems that the new coach is installing. Last year at this time, new coaches didn't have the entire offseason to teach their players new systems, and it put first year head coaches and coordinators in a very difficult position.
This year, coaches do...

In listening to reports, it is clear that Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley would like to get the tight ends more involved in the offense in 2012. That should be a welcomed sight for Steelers fans, who always wonder why tight end Heath Miller seems to disappear at times in the offense. The Steelers also have a talented stable of tight ends as we outlined in tight...
